Can you say I'm a bookworm?

Well I found this on a blog and thought I'd have fun filling it out :)

1. Which book do you irrationally cringe away from reading, despite seeing only positive reviews?

Hmmmm.... I know I have an answer to this...let me think...

Harry Potter I'm definitely not interested in reading so I think that series tops my list....oh the Poe novel..the one about the clock and pendulum or hole or something like that :)

2. Borrowing shamelessly from the Thursday Next series by Jasper Fforde, you are told you can't die until you read the most boring novel on the planet. While this immortality is great for a while, eventually you realize it’s past time to die. Which book would you expect to get you a nice grave?
Odd question, I've never read that book.....Should I go with the Rise and Fall of the Roman Empire, girls? Oh no wait it's supposed to be a novel. War and Peace?

3. Which book have you pretended, or at least hinted, that you’ve read, when in fact you’ve been nowhere near it?
"Lies of every sort are my abhorrence." I don't talk about books I haven't read because...I haven't read them :)

4. You’re interviewing for the post of Official Book Adviser to some VIP (who’s not a big reader). What’s the first book you’d recommend and why?

The person I got the questions from said it depended on the person but she'd recommend Robinson Crusoe, which my Dad has read but I have not so....First book would probably be Pride and Prejudice cause it's an easy read, but also manages to introduce you to the writing of the Old Classics and from there we'd dive into Dickens, Scott and Bronte.

5.A good fairy comes and grants you one wish: you will have perfect reading comprehension in the foreign language of your choice. Which language do you go with?
Hmmmm...on the one hand, ancient langauges are pretty cool, but reading German would be great as well. I could read Schiller in his original language!!

6. A mischievous fairy comes and says that you must choose one book that you will reread once a year for the rest of your life (you can read other books as well). Which book would you pick?
Hmmm.... The Chestry Oak? A great book if you haven't read it :) Currently I'm re-reading The Robe. It might become an annual favorite.

7. That good fairy is back for one final visit. Now, she’s granting you your dream library! Describe it. Is everything leather-bound? Is it full of first edition hard covers? Pristine trade paperbacks? Perhaps a few favourite authors have inscribed their works? Go ahead – let your imagination run free.
(Can someone please tell me where to find one of these fairies?!?? I want one!!)

Floor to ceiling bookshelves, huge arm chairs, nice blankets, fire place, huge windows to let in the light, in a smaller room. I'd rather it be more cozy than enormous. I really like the international collectors edition of several of my favorite classics so I'd like to have the rest of the classics form that edition. My dream library isn't so much a ton of books as it being all books that I have read and enjoyed...and there would of course have to be more empty bookshelves for me to fill with new books :)

So that was fun!
